that might be what has been agreed but, the introduction of the new movie/audio flash player seems to have scuppered this - at least in the short term. If you check earlier entries in this e-mail chain, you will see that I am not the only one affected. Whether the new configuration was really tested (on a number of platforms - mine is Windows XP which I would have thought was reasonably common) or whether it has just been rush-delivered at short-notice without proper testing, I don't know. All I do know is that I used to be able to download GD soundboard shows (those that had not been commercially released) and now - in the last couple of days - I can't. Instead, where the playlist download table/box used to be is an orange block saying you must install Adobe flashplayer and when you do (including doing a reboot to make the install permanent) you get the same "you must install Adobe flashplayer" message - even though you already have. So much for progress.

Since GD soundboards are supposed to be stream-only and not downloadable, it seems that a prior glitch may have been fixed?

Thanks for your response. No, sorry, since the latest configuration change, I can't even get past the "you need to install the new inhouse mp3 player" stage - as I said before, when I install it, it asks me to install it again, even though it (definitely) has been installed. If you read through previous E-mails from others in this chain, you will see that other people experience the same. i.e. it isn't a policy problem, it's a (new/change) in software/hardware problem. Any help you can provide will be much appreciated as, without my 'DDD' (daily dead dose) I am likely to shrivel up and die.
